What is the Fight for Air Climb?

The Lung Health Institute is a proud sponsor of the American Lung Association’s annual fundraiser,”Fight for Air Climb” to support research and advocacy programs for lung disease prevention. This is the second consecutive year that the Lung Health Institute has participated in the Fight for Air Climb and hopes to raise even more money for the cause.

The Fight for Air Climb is the 9th largest stair climb for the American Lung Association with over 1,000 participants. The fundraising goal for this year’s event is $220,000. All proceeds and donations from the climb directly support the American Lung Association’s education and advocacy programs for lung disease research and prevention. It is the ultimate goal of the American Lung Association and the Lung Health Institute to save lives by preventing lung disease and improving overall lung health.

Do I have to Climb Stairs?

We understand that many of the people that want to participate in this event are not physically capable of climbing stairs. Nevertheless, we invite you to help us spread the word about the stair climb and lung disease research and prevention. We cannot do it alone! With your help we hope to have one of the largest teams participating in this event and look forward to meeting our personal fundraising goal of $2,000. You can also get involved by being a virtual participant of the team, this means that you can send a virtual donation, whether anonymous or otherwise, to help support the American Lung Association. You will also receive a free t-shirt.
